Languedoc's Domaine Gayda

Four ripe, adept wines from Languedoc's Domaine Gayda

Domaine Gayda is a Languedoc winery based in the foothills of the Pyrenees, producing several range of wines under different labels; I have tried a number over the years and always been impressed. 
Viognier 2016 zippy lime-marmalade, florality and white pepper; substantial with melon fruit, minerality and good underpinnings.


Figure Libre Freestyle Vin Blanc 2015 citrussy pineapple and melon frui with sweet spices; good underpinnings; waxy yet fresh, rich and warming.


Figure Libre Freestyle Vin Rouge 2015 Rhone-esque fresh, ripe dark fruits, pencil shavings, tobacco leaf and spice; supple, plump and mineral with good underpinnings.


Figure Libre Cabernet Franc 2015 lifted plum, black cherry and raspberry fruit, leathery-earthy mushrooms, tobacco leaf and spice; fresh and supple with an inky texture.

Very Good.
